To me it just seems grossly unfair that some pairs of people get big financial breaks and other pairs of people do not. To make it fair to me, one of two things must happen:
marriage should either carry no financial government privileges,
any pair of committed people should get said privileges, even if it were a pair of siblings or friends sharing living space and expenses.
All true , take it a step further .Why make it a financial benefit for couples over singles .
I prefer to see the same financial breaks for married hetros , gays , ....and singles . Then consider tax breaks the wealthy have over the poor.....the answer is a flat tax.....and that is somthing extremely fair to all and will probably never happen , but should.
